Even work you delay is written one word at a time.
In finding the bravery to keep going to complete your work, understand the doubts will come. They will try and root. They will whisper to you. They will discourage you. But have courage, fellow oracle. Have courage!
Continue the work. Finish the work–one word at a time.
You are creating worlds, people and scenarios! Why would the process of creation be easy? Why would that process be easy? For some, it is easy! But sometimes that journey back to creativity and creation of the worlds in your head take detours. There are road blocks. There are apprehensions! But as a writer, they may always come–like the tides.
The thing you will learn is how to push back with the waves come to overtake. The thing that pushes the waves back the quickest–a pen.
In spite of support, opposition or doubt–continue.
It is a powerful word, continue. For a writer, it means you have or should be endowed with enough strength to complete that which you have started. Regardless of how long it takes. Regardless of who thinks you can’t. As a writer, continue is your superpower.
No matter how long is has been to start, no matter how long it may take to finish. Activate your continue. That, dear one, is at the core of all writers.
Embrace that which is uncomfortable. Sometimes to get at what it is you want from a work, you have to wrestle with it. You have to be both writer and reader!
Answer the questions that need to be answered. Veil the things you want your readers to sit with. But wrestle, my dear ones. Be prepared to wrestle. The writing will be fun, the ride will be wild. Just beware of the curves.
